Im thinking about getting an ebike for my daily commute because I can stash it for free where I work downtown and enjoy a MUCH easier/quicker uphill trip in the evenings (Ill be 60 next year, a mere shadow of the barrel-chested paragon of cardio-vascular excellence I was 10-15 short years ago). Ive shopped a little, but I remain flummoxed by the variety of brands, features, battery configurations and prices. Ive spent a LOT less on perfectly good motorcycles and a used 4x4 truck! Actually, Im willing to pony up for a great bike but Id just be guessing at what to get. Im open to ideas, suggestions and warnings. Good shops in Portland? Not so good? Types of bikes to try first? Types to avoid? My only firm criteria is an adult size bicycle with 26 wheels (as opposed to smaller fold-a-bike rigs with 16-24 tires). I can haul *ss downhill (30+ mph) in the mornings and prefer rigs about the same dimensions as my conventional mountain and road bikes. Pics and ideas welcome. Thanks in advance for whatever you can share!
